The Two Stanley's - Poem by Tom Cummings

Very different but very the same.
Why they even share the very same name.
The Two Stanley's are one of a kind.
Many differences but a love that shines.
To know one is to know another.
You could even say, that they act like brothers.
Different colors,
Different faces,
Different boys,
From distant places.
Both are so special in all the right ways.
Differences mean nothing to my boys these days.
They've grown together through this shining year.
One thing I'm certain and have nothing to fear.
Different colors,
Different faces,
Side by side,
Equal paces.
